“From various experiences, after visiting sports film Festivals and meeting several producers, the idea and desire to do something similar in Montenegro was born. FICTS has 130 joined Countries of which 20 have their own sports film Festival organized in collaboration with the Federation recognized by the International Olympic Committee. The idea that Montenegro could host one as part of the “World FICTS Challenge” International Circuit was born. In addition to culture, sport is also one of the best representatives of the country, as demonstrated by the results of our athletes, both individual and as a team. Sport is a pure emotion and an honest story”. The city of Budva is a candidate for “European Capital of Culture 2028″ so such events are in its favor” – said Miloš Todorović in an interview.
